I've refactored out discussions about spam here that where found on other pages like talk, we might later refactor it in a guideline on how we handle spam on this wiki...

Sorry for coming again with that, I remember having been told there is no solution, but it's the 7th time in about one week that I must revert Michele Tomaiuolo. It's been so fast lately I guess someone is doing it on purpose. It's been done by 188.8.131.52, which doesn't have a reverse DNS entry.
This wiki seems to have an automated locking mechanism. Couldn't you add a rule to stop changes with too long subject lines, or which empty pages, especially from unregistered connections, and especially if it's repetitive? And a way to prevent automated scripts from working, such as images to decipher or simple arithmetic to do à la C2?
Maybe it's time now to activate akismet again. I also will look into other options of the JSPWiki spam filter. Michele, as a quickfix I locked your page, but of course I know that this is no permanent solution.
Yesterday I couldn't restore two pages successively, because I was blocked for a few hours because of my suspicious activity. But the Change note of my second attempt was registered while the contents of the page was left unchanged. The history in http://www.wikicreole.org/PageInfo.jsp?page=MicheleTomaiuolo doesn't reflect that.
Yes, there's something wrong. I'll look into that immediately.

Isn't it possible to reduce spam with technical means? Something like c2, maybe?
The spam filter is already catching alot of this, otherwise we probably couldn't work here anymore. It's not worth talking about spam ;)
